Watarase Onsen Dairotenburo large open-air bathわたらせ温泉大露天風呂

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

The largest open-air bath in Western Japan, situated on the grounds of a large hot spring inn. Non-guests can also enjoy a day trip of bathing in the inn’s baths. This natural hot spring bath is continuously filled from a hot spring source famed for its beautifying properties. In addition to the open-air bath, the inn’s popular reservable private open-air bath for families is also usable by non-guests. In the dining hall adjoining the open-air bath, visitors can enjoy mehari-zushi, a Kumano specialty of rice balls wrapped in mustard leaves, as well as onsen rice porridge.

Review of Watarase Hot Spring

Reviewed:2016/11/05 Private rotemburo (outdoor bath)
Rather than choosing for shared baths for men and women, we chose to have our own private outddoor bath (rotembura). It is more expensive but then you have the outdoor bath to yourself.

Very nice...
Reviewed:2016/02/29 Very good onsen
I arrived to Watarare onsen and i live one of the best experience ever! Bathing outdoors during night time with the moon and the stars above in winter and talking with the local women is incomparable...
Reviewed:2019/11/14 西日本最大の露天風呂
500人が一緒に入れるとうたわれている程の大きな露天風呂ですが、平日の日中に伺った時はいっとき独り占めできるほど空いていました。とろとろとした泉質で、気持ちいい風が吹いているので湯当たりも湯冷めもせず、長湯を楽しめました。
熊野本宮から田辺方面の帰りに寄りましたが、バスでも時間調整すれば立ち寄り可能なところが良かったです。
風呂上がりの熊野古道ビールが最高でした。
値上げされたようで2019年11...

          around-area-map

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country's most delicious ramen noodles.
